    The SRD Indy Series is in Fontana at Auto Club speedway just ahead of the NASCAR weekend for the 3rd oval event of the 2019 season.

    Race Info:

    - Roscoe's House of Chicken 'N Waffles 200
    - Auto Club Speedway
    - 2 mile D-shaped oval
    - 100 laps, 200 miles

    Weekend Schedule:

    Wednesday: Practice (60 mins)/Qualifying
    Thursday: Happy Hour (30 mins)/Race (100 laps)

    Race Notes:
    Last week, we saw yet another first time rookie winner when Clayton Fogg secured the win at Sawmill. This week, the SRD Indy drivers take on Auto Club, the 2nd event on the California swing. Last year, former driver James Gegner managed to pull off the win after being a lap down at one point in the race. Auto Club isn't your average oval, and is known for high speeds and 4-wide (sometimes 5-wide) racing. Drivers will be tested on their timing of moves, and most of all, their patience.

    Practice and qualifying results are up, with ties for the lead in both. Also, the 26 and 52 were 1-2 in Practice.

    "To get a 6th place on the starting grid is obviously a good start to the race week, and while yes I'm happy for the massive improvement gain that we did between practice and quali, again like Denver I don't feel confident for now as I was dead last for practice and I fear that the poor practice pace might come back to bite us in the race..."

    “We were fast in practice but we really lack single car speed. Hopefully we can make up ground when the green flag flies, but it’s gonna he hard to make it through traffic on such a draft dependent track.”

    Nice job there Clayton. As for us, we've got a good car, not a great one. We'll need to be on the ball with adjustments, and not get in any wrecks.

    "P18 in qualifying, and only a tenth and a half difference between us and the polesitter. Not much of a difference but we're still gonna do some work to make this #51 Konica Minolta car faster."

    Coming off the momentum from last week, it is really nice to start the weekend with a pole!

    Speeds for happy hour were all in the 200's, with Anthony Curtain leading the way.

    @BrendonH12: "Not too bad for this Coca-Cola/Reese's team. Sure, we've got some work to do coming from 16th on race day, but this Chevy's had pretty decent speed in all the practice sessions so far. As always, we still got some work to do on the #85 and #87, but we'll get there... eventually... hopefully..."

    “Based on the results so far it looks like this race is just gonna be a constant scramble for positions, a lot of drivers have been in wildly varying spots and everyone has all been within a little more than half a second of each other in every session so far.”

    Well it looks like we picked up some speed in Qualifying and Happy Hour from practice. I might actually be looking forward to this race for once since it is an oval after all.
